Maybe you can buy love

Dear Editor,

As The Friends of the Rifle Animal Shelter, we would like to respond to Chamonix Porter’s heartfelt “Love Your Pets” letter. We would like to thank Chamonix for her genuine concern and obvious pet wisdom relating to our organization’s motto.

For those of you unaware of our advertising, our motto is “Who Says You Can’t Buy Love?” As human beings, we all experience that driving need to love and be loved.

Most of us find this goal to be much more difficult to achieve than is portrayed to us in today’s popular media culture. Some may never fully realize this dream.

That is where our organization and thousands just like it can help. Most of our animals have never seen the better side of human nature. Yet they remain willing and open to sharing their love to any and all that will return it, regardless of age, gender, income or appearance.

Can you buy love, human or otherwise? Of course, not. Yet if you are willing to open your heart and home to any of the countless homeless pets in this country, you are guaranteed to experience a true and unconditional love like none you may ever have known. Who says you can’t buy love? Not those of us who see it daily at the Rifle Animal Shelter. Please stop by and see for yourself. The love of a lifetime could be waiting for you!


Kathy Hall
